The HMC-C050 is a GaAs HBT Ultra Low Noise Amplifier in a miniature, hermetic module designed to operate between 2 and 18 GHz. This high dynamic range amplifier module provides 13.5 dB of gain, 5 dB noise figure and up to +22.5 dBm of OIP 3 with a single supply of +5V. The ultra low phase noise contribution of -160 dBc/Hz, enables superior modulation accuracy within transceiver architectures. The wideband distributed amplifier I/O’s are internally matched to 50 Ohms and DC blocked for robust performance. The module features removable SMA connectors which can be detached to allow direct connection of the I/O pins to a microstrip or coplanar circuit.
